Abstract:

Early life and family; postdoctoral years at Princeton University and University of Cambridge, 1933-1937. General Electric Company; wartime work on radar countermeasures; Donald Kerst; 100 MeV betatron (W. Westendorp, E. Charlton); invention of synchrotron (Edward McMillan, V. Veksler), building the first electron synchrotron (Herb Pollack, Robert Langmuir); observing the effects of radiation. Move to Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) (Jerrold Zacharias); building the Cosmotron (Stanley Livingston, Leland Haworth), problems; the Berkeley Bevatron story. Alternating Gradient Synchrotron conversion, 1965; failure of agreement to build joint machine with Russians; Committee on Chinese program (Luke Yuan, T. D. Lee); superconducting powerline (Jack Jensen, Hugh Long, Eric Forsyth); California Institute of Technology (Matthew Sands); problems of building super energy machines; Brookhaven Superhigh Energy Committee (Yuan, Sam Lindenbaum, Ralph Shutt, Ronald Rau); BNL interactions with University of California, Berkeley (Maurice Goldhaber, McMillan), multiple proposals for 200 BeV machine (Edward U. Condon, Leona Marshall), 1965; Atomic Energy Commission. Blewett directs Brookhaven's energy program; design for synchrotron light source, proposal and competition; Hanford/Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory collaboration gets the job.
